This study investigates regulatory reforms in the telecommunications sector of Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) countries. It explores telecommunications innovations in three developing economies (Morocco, Jordan and Egypt), with a focus on regional and European trends in telecommunications policies. Common knowledge suggests that the European Union and its member states are the main influential regulatory power in the MENA region. However, the empirical analysis of selected telecommunications regulations: universal service obligation (USO) and spectrum management, reveals that reforms are not always determined by European countries but may also originate from other developing countries, such as Peru and Chile. This finding attests to the rise of regulatory influence from the Global South, which challenges traditional transfers of regulations originating from more industrially advanced countries.

"Veronique Wavre's book Policy Diffusion and Telecommunicatons Regulation could be useful for a Nordic reader. ... the book would improve your understanding of the Arab Spring, a series of uprisings in MENA countries in 2011. ... the most innovative part of the entire study is the method based on state-level and sector-level variables, which the author successfully uses for analysing policy adoption in these specific countries as well as for comparing them to each other." (Marko Ala-Fossi, Nordicom Review, Vol. 40 (1), 2019)

"It is an innovative book, in that it brings together different themes that are usually treated separately, for belonging to different strands of the literature. The outcome is an original monograph that is of interest to students of policy diffusion, telecommunications regulation, European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and MENA countries. ... Wavre produced an excellent and original monograph that I recommend to anyone interested in policy analysis in MENA countries, EU Neighbourhood Policy and regulation in developing countries." (Emmanuelle Mathieu, Swiss Political Science Review, Vol. 25 (1), 2019)
